** Later episodes revealed that Drake Mallard actually was his civilian identity, before he became Darkwing, but the beginning episode "Darkly Dawns the Duck" makes clear that he had not been using his civilian identity for quite some time, living full-time as a superhero. (Questions of how he does the grocery shopping, and where he gets his income, and other such mundane trivia are conspicuously never answered, and this is even at one point lampshaded.) The episode "Clash Reunion", in which the superheroic identity was invented, made it very clear that Drake Mallard was exceedingly unpopular, while Darkwing Duck was an instant success. The intensely egotistical and vain protagonist probably began neglecting his civilian identity as soon as possible for this reason, until Gosalyn gave him a compelling reason to take it back up.

* Similar to the Heinlein novel below, the film ''Film/{{Dave}}'' features a U.S. President that's had a stroke, putting him in a coma some corrupt politicians don't want anybody to know about, prompting them to hire a guy already working as a look-alike for the President to step in and replace him. His sudden exposure to the weight of the burden on the President inspires him to turn on said crooks and try to improve the country.
** TheReveal [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment reveals]] that the former president was ''even more'' corrupt than the bad guys, and Dave was a better president than the real one ever was.

* Film/ManOfSteel brings a possible ''third'' interpretation into the Superman mythos: Clark and Superman are one in the same, with minimal effort taken to make each identity distinct. Clark's disguise is paper-thin because it's all he ''needs'' it to be since most people really don't think Superman ''has'' a secret identity.

** Michael Fleischer speculated that if Krypton had not been destroyed, Kal-El would have been more like Clark Kent. Like his dad, he'd have a brilliant mind and do extraordinary things, but might be a bit shy and diffident, unsure if he could live up to Jor-El's reputation.
